National BidNinja Day

It’s December 5th – and we all know what that means. Well, maybe not all of us, but some of us.

It’s International Ninja Day, or as we call it at, National BidNinja Day!


For those of you familiar with our main site, the ninjas are likely a familiar sight to you – there’s an option to align your profile with the ninja you identify with the most (more on that in a moment), and they frequently make appearances in our weekly email promotion, as well as in our social media pages. There are 12 BidNinjas in all, and we’re going to take some time today to introduce them and talk a bit about their favorite things.

Described as “86% Detective, 14% Eagle,” our SpyNinja is well-known for keeping a low, low profile and using the Watch List to keep tabs on coveted items. When the bidding action starts heating up, SpyNinja jumps in. Here are our personal SpyNinja picks to keep a close eye on – for your own chance to dive in when it’s getting hot.



A true champion of the ProxyBid system, the DealNinja cuts straight through the bidding shenanigans, hunts down the best deals, and saves a truckload.

bling bidninja

The master of all things luxury, fashion, and glitter, the BlingNinja lives for the finer, sparkly-er things in life: diamonds, gemstones, gold, silver…if it’s eye-catching and you can accessorize with it, the BlingNinja is on top of it. Always on the prowl for those special listings, BlingNinja brings home the pretty things – and without having to empty their wallet in the process. Take a look at some of our top BlingNinja selections.


bidninja highroller

A close friend of BlingNinja, the Highroller Ninja does not mess around. They come for quality, bid on only quality, and take home quality. If it’s an item they want, they’re not afraid to shell out serious money for it. For the HighrollerNinja, money is no object when it comes to getting what you want. Rolex? Got it. MacBook? Snagged it. That’s how the HighrollerNinja does it. Try these links for the HighrollerNinja recs.

ToolNinja and TechNinja

Two sides of the same coin, the TechNinja and ToolNinja keep their eyes out for bargains in their respective interests, and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty with some repairs if it means snatching up an otherwise tragically out of reach item. Best deals, best brands – new gadgets, old gadgets. They’re all about it, all the time. For our TechNinja picks, click here. For the ToolNinja choice auctions, try these.



A BidNinja with squirrel tendency and hoarder habits, the LotsaNinja likes lotsa shooping, lotsa bidding, and most importantly of all, lotsa winning. Their auctions of choice are bulk lots, giving them a chance at finding plenty of treasures – and maybe even a few cheap favorites. Bidding is spread over potentially dozens of auctions, and results in nearly as many wins. Feed your inner LotsaNinja with these open auctions.



The most giving of the BidNinja crew, the GiftNinja doesn’t need an excuse to pick up presents left and right for friends and family. Forever frugal, the GiftNinja browses open auctions for gift possibilities on a budget. Each auction win is a present bestowed on their loved ones – all without having to break the bank. Here are our choices for the GiftNinja squad.

A very special and particular breed of BidNinja, the GeoNinja is all about pickup.

 A sneaky master who doesn’t waste any time, the StealthNinja swears by the tried-and-true method of waiting in the wings on auctions ending soon, and then turning up the heat by submitting bid after bid after bid. The StealthNinja thrives on last-minute deals and snags more than their fair share. Take a look at our auctions ending in the next 24 hours, and see if you’d like to take a stab at being a StealthNinja.
